In April 1925 an unassuming schoolteacher left Buenos Aires with two horses, to ride to New York. When he arrived two years later, he was greeted by a ticker-tape parade. His account of the journey, first published in 1933, tells how he traversed the Pampas, scaled the Andes, swam crocodile-infested rivers and escaped capture by revolutionaries. It has inspired generations of adventurers, including Robin Hanbury-Tenison, who provides the introduction to this new edition.
